Pros:

I've built countless computers by hand for friends and family and this case by far made it the most enjoyable experience I've had with building. The entire case is very well built and sturdy. I am able to hold the somewhat-heavy case door by the corner and it does not bend/flex. Cable management was a breeze and I don't have a modular power supply. The hand screws are great, although you may have to loosen them with a screwdriver for the first time. The hard drive bays have rubber shock absorbers, awesome. My i5-2500k @ 4.5GHz idles/full load 25/65c, but the weather has been cool here. The 3 stock fans are great and are very quiet, I would guess ~25db?

Cons:

The front panel gets noticeably dusty faster than any other part, but easy to clean with dust-off. I was unable to screw in one of the screw-risers, that the motherboard rests on, all the way in. This defect on the case's part, but not in any way limiting as there are many motherboard screws. There is a bright blue power light on the top that can be annoying, however it is easy to place the manual of the case on it to block the light, or use a dime.

Other Thoughts:

I was also blessed with the first boot attempt working without a hitch on my new mobo/cpu/ram. I bought it on sale for $100 down from $110. Note the $20 dollar shipping, I live in LA so I was able to pick it up from Newegg. I've also seen it on sale for $85 with free shipping here. Would buy again.
